when the wave crashed into them and he lost grip of my grandson he say he swim towards the light and made it out alive but i can't find my grandson or daughter in law now amidst the grief comes the anger and the questions. you pigs do your jobs you don't understand a thing. the vogue area pleasure boat sank in just three minutes on sunday now some people are saying it should never have been on the volga atoll. as the bog area passed us two hours before it looked an awful condition of they had done a pretty voice before it set off it would never have been allowed to sail. growing evidence seems to point to gross mismanagement on the vessel including a broken engine ignored by the captain and blocked emergency exits were used to work on it it was called the ukraine more and more people complained to the just change the name to the bulgaria the crew themselves always praise god for saving
1:02 am
them every time they got off that ship the vessel was first built in one nine hundred fifty five and as recently as last month was given official clearance to sail. despite this rescue teams say it was hopelessly outdated the crew that was working tell me they noticed water coming in through the windows at such a pace the boat went down very quickly now president medvedev has ordered wide ranging checks saying there are many more bulgaria's out there the number of decrepit barges cruising along our waterways is enormous and the fact that we were lucky before yesterday doesn't mean anything like that couldn't have happened all of this will come to the fore when the ship itself is raised to the surface for investigation but it's the hiring accounts of what happened on the weekend pleasure cruise the told the real story. is that people were basically buried alive in china metal coffin we managed to get out through the windows i was there with my ten year
1:03 am
old daughter i couldn't rescue her she swallowed too much water when i was pulled out i realized my child was gone rescue workers will continue their efforts throughout the coming hours and days but hope has now gone they will find anyone else alive leaving just the shock and grief. of all go back central russia. coming up in a few minutes drawn out decision francis at a loss what to do with the libyan capital a. letter to the country sit down and talk to colonel gadhafi in. the middle east peace quartet made up of russia america the u.n. and the e.u. has gathered in washington in attempt to revive stalled israeli palestinian peace talks meeting comes a point in relations between israel and its biggest ally the u.s. but the president obama spoke in favor for
1:04 am
a turn to established nine hundred sixty seven borders. vast swathes of palestinian land and a sense declared much of it as its own the gathering of the quartet also comes the u.n. vote this september. officially recognizing premised on as a sovereign state only opposed by israel. and you can experience more there's so much to see the tools to kill. the quartet has met at a time when its efforts as the global mediator in the middle east peace process are largely seen as ineffective there's a sense that cost for negotiations alone are not enough in fact they've reached a dead end and meet the failure to negotiate a solution palestinians plan to seek a vote by the un general assembly is september recognizing the state of palestine that adds urgency to the meeting of the quartet as some analysts say could be the last chance for the global mediators to prove their efficiency before at the possible voting september divides the international community which it most
1:05 am
certainly will there is a vision that all quartet members share and that is a two state solution for these three weeks and the palestinians and that the starting point for those negotiations have to be the pre-one nine hundred sixty seven border lines but these three least find the near mentioning of nine hundred sixty seven border lines unacceptable the palestinians on the other hand demanding israel stop building settlements on the occupied territories demands which israel effectively nors so it's a snowball of conditions that have resulted in the decades old impasse the two sides have not been able to come to a solution and the hope always was that wall powers could mediate a peaceful outcome but even though the quartet members say they want to see two independent states eventually they have not been united in how they see the path to the solution the u.s. for example blocks every u.n. attempts to influence the situation take the settlements the obama administration has called the israeli settlements expansion illegitimate but when it came to actually voting at the un security council to condemn the settlement expansion is
1:06 am
illegal the u.s. veto the resolution analysts say the fact that israel is the protectorate of the united states makes it hard to expect a balanced approach from washington whereas rushing. seen by many as the more impartial mediator moscow has held consultations with both these really authorities and the palestinian authorities many times hearing out their complaints their grievances because the palestinian vote voice is virtually blocked in the us their leadership is labeled as terrorists here and experts say mediation is next to impossible when you refused to talk to one of the site. meanwhile brownback a national coordinator of the antiwar ounce of coalition says there is little chance of a peaceful resolution as long as the u.s. continues to fashion its policies around israeli interests there are different different desires different agendas within the quartet from the u.s. government point of view the purpose of these renewed talks is to put pressure on
1:07 am
the palestinian authority which having received nothing from the israelis and nothing from the americans during the past years seen israeli settlements growing and expanding in spite of president obama's promise that this that there would be a halt freeze and settlement construction in the west bank and spite of the fact that the siege of gaza has taken so much in spite of the fact that the israelis are claiming all of jerusalem for themselves so the american government in particular which is the primary sponsor of israel which gives israel three billion dollars a year the largest recipient of u.s. foreign aid they realize that israel could become increasingly isolated so they're trying to come up with some solution what the solution is not acceptable to the broad mass of the palestinian people because it means giving up the right of return and giving all of jerusalem to israel and allowing these west bank settlements to continue so there's there are between a rock and a hard place they need a settlement but as long as they're following the israeli agenda or supporting the
1:08 am
israeli agenda which has its own narrow. aims to gobble up more and more palestinian territory there can't be a resolution. hours before the middle east quartet convened in washington israel introduced a law that makes it a crime for its citizens to boycott jewish settlements in occupied palestinian territory nor has already been criticized for violating free speech and starting democracy. as the details of all this past late monday by a vote of ninety seven in favor and fifty eight against it is will be both to protect the state of israel to boycotts and essentially what you do now is for any kind of signal system one based business to suit for damages is rabies morning for boycotts a new presupposes fines if the queen is not an israeli he or she can also be prevented from barred from entering this country now what is interesting is that
1:09 am
the legal adviser for the knesset the israeli parliament is himself against this bill he has called it borderline illegal and this is a sentiment that is echoed by human rights organizations and civil parliamentarians they say that it is anti democracy it is anti freedom of speech and people really should be allowed to fulfill boycotts of both the occupied territories and this is woman's behavior of the peace now movement has said that the israeli government is trying to act to quote him as full police and be peace now in other human rights organizations plan to appeal this decision in these really high schools. well for more on the reasoning behind israel's crackdown on the anti settlement activity and the implications it my tab we're now joined by guy executive director of the association for civil rights in israel mr la thank you for joining us here on r t what do you think is the reasoning behind this new law. good morning the passing
1:10 am
of this law was a bad day for freedom of speech a bad day for his early democracy. and even more unfortunately it is only the current representation of the rising wave of democratic legislation that is gradually drowning the phone dacian of his or them ocracy yes he mentioned that over the last couple of years israel has approved a number of controversial those always seeing a trend here. yes it's been going over the past two and a half years the current coalition government this is what we would framed third in a row that isn't a democratic impeding basic democratic principles the point that we keep reiterating is democracy is not a form of government in which citizens vote once every four years and in between there is the tire on the of the majority on the contrary in democracy you do not vote on certain issues and certain rights you do not vote on the rights of
1:11 am
minorities you cannot vote on human rights you do not vote on freedom of speech the passing of the law yesterday which basically has never been explained sufficiently israeli citizens are using boycotts as a matter of fact on a wide variety of issues as citizens in any other democratic country. on environmental issues on consumer issues and on political issues using boycotts is a well recognized nonviolent democratic legitimate form of protest since yesterday's laws been passed. on all of these issues the citizens could continue using boycotts if you don't want to buy a different product certain product if you're angry with a certain company issue that is your nonviolent way for instance if you so choose to express your protest on all of these issues this will remain legal on the single issue this is now become illegal boycotting the settlement goods on protesting the
1:12 am
occupation it's interesting you mention israeli citizens their particular why would these many government targets and people like this just the public. i think that what is gradually seen here is a process in which norms from beyond the green line from the occupied territories well lately there are constant gross human rights violations are gradually trickling into israel into the green line in the occupied territories it is a mockery to talk about real speech now what is happening is that we are also seeing the roshan of the freedom of speech of israeli citizens as well for many years and i think rightfully so has been recognized as a country with strong democratic attributes a free press an independent judiciary free elections strong protections for essential rights such as freedom of speech and so on but what we're seeing here is
1:13 am
the gradual sad process in which the israeli parliament is by itself undoing eroding those democratic principles not just a prolonged occupation for more than four decades but also targeting the rights of . minorities in the as well and specifically arab citizens of the state of israel targeting human rights organisations and the ability to function freely something that we've always taken for granted and is now being gradually eroded and also targeting the independence of the high court of justice and its ability to continue to defend human rights and civil liberties in israel. thank you very much and have to leave it there for now that executive director of the say station for civil rights in israel thank you. thank you very much. well you can always find more stories on our website at r.t. dot com one with the latest news of blogs and videos just some of what you find there right now the shane circumstances surrounding the death of
